"For a good time call Marie Antoinette, Cleopatra, Catherine the Great, Bonnie Parker or just read Chrys Tobey's A Woman is a Woman is a Woman is a Woman. These are boisterous poems, well-crafted poems that just won't behave. Outrageous, shifty, smart poems that remind us that slapstick and pain are kissing cousins. Where surprise keeps popping up, and just when you start to laugh, they break your heart."

—Richard Garcia

“Tobey’s voice is one to return to and follow in the coming years. Her poetry is a confidence proclamation that draws us in, takes us under, and then spits us out. This time, changed.”

—Alex Bennett, Boog City Review
